A Face In The Crowd (1957)

Playing on TCM at 11pm PST on 12/21/2011

A classic story of the corruption of power. This is about a female television executive who turns a folk-singing drifter into a powerful media star. This movie stars Andy GriffithPatricia Neal, Anthony Franciosa & Walter Matthau. This movie shows the real acting ability of a little known actor of that time Andy Griffith who later became sitcom royalty with the Andy Griffith Show. The acting is top-notch and the direction by Elia Kazan is fantastic. Make sure you try to catch this and let me know what you think. If you can’t catch it when it plays make sure to DVR it!

  1. I remember (OF COURSE!) seeing this a lonnng time ago & am definately going to DVR it to watch again (because OF COURSE since I saw it already, probably the original film, that means I’m too old to stay awake to catch it at 11 – haha!). An outstanding movie. BTW – So darn good to see you back! Missed you kiddo!

      It is a really great flick. I had never seen Andy Griffith like this before and was taken back by his performance as Lonesome Rhodes. I missed you too Vic!!
